Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

We're 4 days from the Friday's match and yet ITV are still having a pop at San Marino

Making me want a San Marino to turn heel and join forces with Argentina in an attempt to capture the Falklands

I completely understand why Liverpool fans hate him.
In Hodgson's mind it means that England can sit back, soak up pressure and hit teams on the break with overlapping full backs...yet the reality is that any half decent winger will pick apart Johnson which forces England to sit deeper in order to negate the threat. Milner's ball retention is mediocre at best so that doesn't help matters much either, he and Welbeck gave the ball away as soon as England won it back, near enough every fucking time. So in essence the tactics don't work at all, unless we're playing really poor sides.

I can see why Hodgson has been successful with extremely limited sides because he can organise his teams well, but I really don't see what else he brings to the table. Poor squad selections, poor team selections, poor tactics and a negative attitude in general. I made a comment in the Euro 2012 thread how I thought that we might struggle to even qualify for World Cup 2014 because of too many draws due to the negativity...so far we have three draws from six games.

I know England are hardly amazing these days, but we can do far better than we did tonight.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

These comments sound very out of place from an England performance :jordan

More importantly though my new nation of residence Belgium won

I love Welbeck but he does look very clumsy on the ball. Can't remember him looking like that last season when he was playing right up top but yeah he needs to sort his footwork out a bit.

Useless is too harsh as he's had some good performances for United. But against the Elite, all he has to offer is hard work. And the odd header goal in the Bernabeu I suppose

He's not the only one and that's the sad thing. I can't be bothered to go into it, because it's been done to death, but the development phase needs to be looked at seriously. English players are devoid of any real technique, which makes them surrender possession too easily.

Average teams with average managers are only going to be average I suppose.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

Sturridge is much better than Welbeck don't understand why Woy doesn't play him more, in other news Pogba is a mong, great performance ruined in one minute with two silly yellows I still think he's going to be stupidly good though

Yeah, i agree.

England should invest more into their youth system in order to create better technical players. Even bring rules into the PL, so teams have to develop their young players more instead of spending a load of money on foreign exports.

Germany revamped their system after their failure in Euro 2000 and they are enjoying the benefits. Maybe they can do the same in England?

* yes i brought up Germany, but it's relevant.

Re: International Matches Discussion Thread

How Tom Cleverley is a starting international player absolutely beggars belief. He isn't good at anything. Not strong, not fast, not creative, no flair, not defensively good. Just average.
